I wonder if there is a way for EA to parse changes to the url at run time. That way you could have your menu link to section IDs like:
Browsers don't reload the whole page when they encounter these named anchors or links to section IDs. But someone with more experience than me would need to tell you if you can retrieve the changed url. (A side benefir of this is that you could send people links to "internal" sections of your EA animation.)
Thanks I think you might be on to something here. Like most, EA is a bit new to me, but how you describe "Send people to 'internal' sections of your EA animation" - that's exactly what I need to do.
Hope that helps,
Is there just a bit more detail available? Or a reference article?
Given my example of being on a page at the url of:
and I would like to jump my animation using two external buttons or menu items with links to:
I guess I would set my marker name to "EA_section1" and "EA_section2". But where would I code the actual jump?
I guess Elaine is talking about jumping to different parts of the animation from a single web page (which is exactly what I need to do).
Jerry, I assume that you are thinking of referencing different parts of an animation on different web pages. If so, I guess you could use the above method to instruct an animation to proceed to a defined point when the page loads?

We ended up using the following code
var Comp = AdobeEdge.getComposition('EDGE-XXXXXXXX');
You can replace .stop() with .play() depending on what you want the movie to do.
We're currently working on parsing a URL to the movie so that you can navigate to a specific part of the animatio when you land on it from another page. This may prove interesting for pre-loaders though.
